So, I just ordered a Fuller Kitchen Solutions Sprial Veggie Peeler thingy. (See it here. There is a video on QVC and I highly recommend you watch it!) Yeah, it's kinda gimmicky, but I have always wanted one! (plus the reviews are pretty dang good.)
How could you resist turning regular ol' zucchini into this:
Gawjuss, right!? Yep, I am a sucker, but I cannot wait to fix up some zucchini, carrots, potatoes, onions, cucumbers, apples, etc. with this thing. Think about the PRETTY salads you could make and enjoy eating. Not to mention a low-sugar/carb pasta substitute! I know my hubby would love a heap of potato "strings" that have been flash-fried. (or onions!!) It can do 3 different widths of "noodles/ribbons". Think of your raw-food options here!
My goal will be to use this at least 2 times a week so that it can avoid the "get-placed-under-the-cabinet-and-never-be-used-again" doom. I will say this though, I am one of those folks who give very careful consideration to the appliances she buys. 1) because I do not like things sitting on my counters and 2) because I hate that feeling when you find something stashed away somewhere that you were *so* excited to buy and you have used it only a few times.
I have a nice Breville juicer that we use frequently (at least 2 times a week) and a good bread machine that has been teetering on the edge of good purchase vs. bad purchase. It makes killer low-carb breads and even better regular breads (sour dough, nom nom!!), so regardless of what freaking *diet* I am on, I can use it.
Anyways, welcome to the family Spiral-Slicer-Thingy!
This is going to be fun!
More food porn: (yum!)
